Changing The Newspaper Game One Day At A Time
By Joey Young from NewspaperDisruptor

“I am so sick of hearing about the death of newspapers, it is starting to drive me insane. Why do so many good journalists just accept that the industry is dying without looking at the mounting evidence that it is simply changing slightly and there are not just a few good years left, but decades, and more for a lot of us?…”

HAPPY FLAG DAY AMERICA!

Significance of Flag Day
Flag Day is a holiday observed annually on June 14. It is a day that commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States that took place in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.

History of Flag Day
The history of Flag Day dates back to June 14, 1777, when British symbols of the Grand Union flag were replaced with a new design featuring 13 white stars in a circle on a field of blue and 13 red and white stripes ( one for each state) by the Continental Congress. The number of stars increased as the new states entered the Union, but the number of stripes stopped at 15 and was later returned to 13.

In June 1886 Bernard Cigrand made his first public proposal for the annual observance of the birth of the flag. Cigrand's efforts to ensure national observance of Flag Day finally came when President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation calling for a nationwide observance of the event on June 14, 1916.

However, Flag Day did not become official until August 1949, when President Harry Truman signed the legislation and proclaimed June 14 as Flag Day. In 1966, Congress also requested that the President issue annually a proclamation designating the week in which June 14 occurs as National Flag Week.

Did you know... Typefaces/fonts were originally created by hand and often named after the printer who created them? A great example is French printer Claude Garamonde; his font is still in use today.

Did Your Know?
Portable printing presses were used during the civil war? According to the National Museum of American History - “Every Man His Own Printer!” advertised the makers of the Lowe and Adams presses. Easy to use, these presses inspired military and amateur printers during and after the Civil War to make use of portable presses to print military orders, receipts, billheads, and other documents.
